Goal

The Walk to Conquer Cancer and Journey to Conquer Cancer raise funds to support research and patient care at the world renowned Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (PMCC).

These fundraiding events will take place in Toronto (see MAP, below) on September 10 & 11, 2022 (with Friday, September 9 for event preparation) and are only possible because of the support of dedicated volunteers in a wide variety of 'roles', and part of a large team.
